How Did We Ever Stand These 13 Old-School Movie Cliches?

By Mustafa Gatollari

If you grew up in the '90s, then chances are you were bred on the best and most popular '80s movies that were constantly running on TV. I'm talking about that WPIX (Channel 11 for the New Yorkers) Sunday afternoon movie.

Each genre of movie had their own cliches and tropes. Action films, kids movies, romantic comedies, fantasy/adventure films, and even family-friendly and holiday fare all followed a rubric.

You could almost play bingo with how often these movies "borrowed" certain scenes, gags, lines, and even characters, from each other. But, like most trends, many of these tired tropes in TV and movies have gone the way of the dodo, thankfully.
